Mark Patterson and I took a trip to Tegucigalpa last Monday. We had to buy a few items for MEDA. We also stopped by an electrical shop whose owners implied they would give us a discount if we shopped their store. They were very generous to MEDA and we plan to shop there frequently.
We received some bad news from our contractor regarding the house by the river. It was our intention to rehab the house to save money but the contractor says it has to be totally demolished and rebuilt from scratch. Foundation, walls and roof are crumbling after many years of vacancy. The foundation was not properly constructed and would not hold the weight of our proposed remodel plan. The good news is we get to design our own floor plan from scratch which means a more “open” floor plan as opposed to the maze of rooms we originally were trying to work with.
